Jose Lopez of the DSL would have 218 BBs in 500ABs at his current pace.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-13-19

Lange with the nice magic trick tonight of giving up 7 unearned runs lowering his ERA to under 3. Marginal pitcher getting by on smoke, mirrors, and bad defense. What is Lange's stuff nowadays? Just a couple years ago he was a 1st round pick in the college WS with a solid fastball, a great curve ba...

There's no reason for him not to be. You currently have non-prospects(like Daniel) playing 2b beyond High-A.

I'm all for Slaughter going as well with Reynolds sinking or swimming at High A.

You have older Of'ers in Eugene as well but...

Re: Trade targets 2019

Unless Ivy found some hidden value in bad middle infielders, they're better off keeping that number at 2 and not 3.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Bernie's plan is just to cancel all current student loan debt and is far less thought out. https://www.forbes.com/sites/adamminsky/2019/06/27/how-do-warrens-and-sanders-student-loan-forgiveness-plans-compare/#26c61a8618c4 It still fails to address those who don't want to go to college who are likel...

Re: Politics & Current Events

What's the down side of eliminating student debt? Who loses? Student debt punishes young people in the poor and middle class. The kids of the rich don't have to deal with debt after going to Yale or Harvard that they only got into based on family legacy. It's another way to punish lower income peop...

Re: Politics & Current Events

This is horse horsefeathers. Student debt is practically a necessity to achieve the "American Dream". Republicans are trying to get rich on the backs of the poor. People with student debt have it because they were trying to better their lives through education. If I vote for someone stric...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Warren is awesome and my #1 choice, but her plan won't pay off my entire amount. I don't regret my decision and am paying them down on my own. But truthfully I wouldn't be upset if Bern stuck around long enough that some of the other front-runners besides Warren start to adopt something close to hi...

Re: Politics & Current Events

This makes me a little sad. Obviously a selfish factor but I have a lot of student debt and the idea of Uncle Bern paying it all off is quite appealing. I do think 2016 was probably his time. Then support Warren. Warren is awesome and my #1 choice, but her plan won't pay off my entire amount. I don...

As long as the not-so dynamic duo of Russell and DeScalso continue to combine to form the biggest black hole in baseball and Zo continues to sulk at home or church or wherever he does his sulking, I see no reason not to give Robel a look-see. I can only assume you have never gone through a divorce ...

I haven't seen this, but if it is as you say it is, then Biden deserves scorn for it-maybe not in the self-aggrandizing way de Blasio did it, but still.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-19-19

Excited to see Nunez in the rotation , hopefully he'll stay there even with the influx of 19 draftees (even if they only get 30Ip) May I ask why? Legit question, no snark intended. Projection, they seem to be doing better with LA pitchers with Nunez, he's still adding strength with a FB that sits l...

Re: 2019 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Although Auer was my favorite of the prep players I seen the Cubs take (between him, Schlaffer, and Ritter), I'm glad they've been aggressive in signing the HS'ers and not really needing Auer as an insurance policy.

Leo Gomez goes into that large, faceless pile of "people who played 3b at some point for the Cubs" with no differentiating traits. Honestly you could take any Hispanic-sounding male name and tell me they played 3b for the Cubs in the 80s or early 90s and my brain would say "oh yeah, ...
